Refinied metal crusher

I'm not a big fan of this particular idea, but would giving any construction that is made of metal ore the option of using refined metal solve this issue?

Yeah but I don't see it happening any time soon since refined metal is so quite long in the game

Soon is not our concern, the solution that makes sense long term is what should be done.  TrustyFish is on the right track in my opinion, in fact their should even be some kind of benefit from using refined metal in buildings that could be made with ore, needs less material for example?  That is the nature of metals after all, we use better metals not only the make things we could not make before but also to make everything previously made better.  For example we don't make axes out of Bronze anymore.

Ideally I would love both, the problem with using refined metals in non refined metal builds is that they increase overheat temperature a fairly large amount IIRC becuase they are essentially different metals.

Changing refined metal back into ore is a good idea but I don't think a crusher would work as you would need to add impurities to the metal like sand or rock.  How about a hydraulic compressor?
